Stills: Centre for Photography

Book now

Explore our exhibition, Cindy Sherman: Early Works 1975-80, and read and discuss passages of fiction and poetry.

The exhibition at Stills presents, Untitled (Murder Mystery People), some of Sherman’s earliest self-portrait photographs that were made in 1976, the year she graduated from the art department at the State University College at Buffalo, USA. The exhibition also includes the 16mm film, Doll Clothes, (1975) and a selection of works from Untitled Film Stills (1977-80), the series for which Sherman first gained international recognition.

The session will start with Samuel reading short pieces of fiction and poetry aloud with the group. You will then be given the chance to try your hand at some relaxed creative writing in response to the exhibition itself.

No previous writing experience necessary and all welcome to this informal session.
